Handspun Friday

A few weeks ago I spun up 4 ounces of 100% merino roving by Cyberfiber. It reminds me of the beach - so I'm calling it Tidewater.

I am very happy with how this roving came out. I was actually trying for a lace weight, but after plying and soaking - it's fluffed up to be about a fingering weight.

I have over 400 yards of it so I think it's destined to be a shawl of some kind. Maybe something I design? I've been thinking about trying to design a shawl.

I just love the subtle colors!


Have a great weekend!

It is gorgeous. You should make an I LOVE my handspun scarf (Michelle's Pattern) if you don't feel like making something lacy!

Tidewater's a pretty name. Maybe that could lead you into some kind of marine motif for the shawl?
